    Hello! After 5 years of dreaming of getting chicks again, I just got 6 today!!!! I'm so excited!!!! Anyhow, we got them at tractor supply and the kid there had no idea what they were or how old.

    I'm thinking I have 3 barred rocks and 3 Isa Browns but not 100% sure.

    What do you think?

    Thank you for your help!!!! [​IMG]

    they look to me like 3 barred rocks (if they have single combs) or Dominique (if they have rose combs).
    the other 3 could be Rhode Island reds, New Hampshire reds or Red sexlinks. I would lean more towards Rhode Island reds.

    You will have lots of nice eggs from both breeds.
